power slide window failure!

Just wondering if anyone else had issues with the rear power slide window? I hardly ever open mine but last week had all the windows down and opened the slide for a while when i treid to shut it the thing paused then went slow then i noticed cables popping up on both side of the window behind the seat and it was still open about a 1". Me and another guy played rocking the button/pulling cables for 20min. before we got it closed looks like it is tore up pretty good ripped out where the cables enter the track i did not pull the panel to see the rest but it cant be good worst part is it needs to go to the dealer!

I called the service dept. today and of course they want to see it and waste a hour of time then he told me they dont do that type of work they have a outside company come in! So is the window and motor assm. ford or aftermarket what will they be installing? I am starting to wonder!

Get it closed and leave it that way, you aren't gonna like the price lol.

There is a TSB for it. I won't post it up here, (Copyrighted material) but you should be able to Google search it.

I would imagine they are putting a FoMoCo window/motor/track assembly in it.

Hmm... apparently some places have no problem posting copyrighted material. http://ww2.justanswer.com/uploads/ke...sb06-15-05.pdf

This is for a 04-07, but it is the same idea, I believe. I will check for 08's tomorrow, but, like I said, I think it is the same basic procedure. The window DOES mount differently in an 08 than a pre-08, however. I haven't had a great deal of luck with these windows, ever.

And they likely are bringing someone else in to do it, because a lot of dealerships don't have a glass guy on staff, it's cheaper to have an outside company come in and do it, that way if a window gets broke and it shouldn't have (most times if you're changing a windshield, or pulling it out, she's ****ed anyhow), the guy doing it is liable for the damage, not the dealership. I know most guys don't much like workin' flat rate on glass, that's for sure.

sorry to semi-hijack, but is there any type of lubricant or similar that would allow the glass to move freely in the channel?

My window functions, but likes to get ****eyed in the channel when opening or closing and I would rather not try my hand at being a glass technician. I was thinking that a lubricant like Sil-glide(sp?) or Super Lube would help lessen the resistance on the motor and cables.

TIA
